We are pleased to add a small piece of technology to the practice to help with patient comfort during their dental treatments. The Isolite system is a small, soft plastic piece to provide tongue and cheek retraction for the patient during their treatments such as fillings and crowns. The plastic piece helps the patient to keep their mouth open comfortably and holds the tongue out of the way of the dental instruments. The instrument also illuminates the interior of the mouth, making our jobs easier, and a bit faster. While this is an added benefit that most patients won’t even notice, the end result is less soreness in the jaw muscles and greater comfort.
